Miranda Tapsell won the Most Outstanding Newcomer Logie and Most Popular New Talentaward, and was inspiring to listen to. Well done, Miranda. Here is one of her speeches, below. The highlight? THIS, wheresaid she hopes her work transcends race. YES.
"The great thing about being a woman of Aboriginal heritage in 2015, we are seeing more and more roles where race is not the central thing. We're always going to see an element of that in a show set in the 60s but at the end of the day, she's one of the girls," said Miranda of her character Martha.
"I really hope it's the beginning, I hope we don't stop there in making diverse casting and we're really on our way there in Australia and I hope we continue this cultural shift."
